. strengthen nato's defense posture and impose costs on the putin government. broadly these are objectives most americans want to achieve right now but this particular circumstance i believe presents president obama with a fairly stark choice. ad-libbing was the term kim used. i would describe it as muddling through. he can either seek to mutt dell through this crisis or use it to articulate a broader vision of the role the united states should be playing and what we should be achieving through global leadership at this time. this is important because the russian invasion ever the crimean peninsula, is in my view symptommic of a role in which we see growing pressure against our allies, security partners, our friend in many areas and many regions simultaneously. would compare this moment perhaps to, once again kim mentioned the example of president carter facing the soviet invasion of afghanistan. would compare it both to perhaps president truman in 1947 looking at turkey straits crisis which was a very specific circumstance to which there were specific measures taken in terms of u.s. military a
and nothing happened. so the russian defense ministry said it didn't issue such an ultimatum, but the ukrainian defense forces said that they definitely received it. and journalists did report witnessing that ultimatum being handed to them. so, it's not quite clear who exactly is threatening whom, but the situation, you know, remains such that everyone is waiting for russia to play its hand and attack or not attack. >> what -- people in the area want or thinks, not the military but the people. >> i think ethnic russian community in crimea, which is the majority of the population on the peninsula, they are content to have the russian troops here protecting them from the new government that came to power in last month's revolution. however, they do not want any blood to be spilled. i think the minute that russia attacks any of the bases or kills any ukrainian servicemen, they will lose the support of the local population definitely. >> simon, if you will stand by, we will get back to you little later in the hour. thank you, simon. >> thank you. >> what should the united states

minister on tuesday. it's widely believed the current defense minister will run in the upcoming presidential elections. joining me now is david kirkpatrick. he is the cairo bureau chief of the "new york times." he wrote an in-depth investigative report on the ben gauzy attacks when christopher stevens was killed in september 2012. i'm pleased to have david kirkpatrick back at this table. welcome. >> it's good to be here. >> rose: you have been there and watched the arab spring wherever it is now unfold changing a region. >> yes i i was in egypt in time for the revolution there, i was there when khadafy fell. it's been breathtaking. >> rose: where is egypt today. >> it's very hard to know. as you mentioned, field marshall has likely to become the next president. he's the general who ousted egypt's first democratically elected president mohamed morsi of the muslim brother brotherh. he was embraced as a hero and he was promising stability when he ousted president morsi. right now, i think that promise looks very remote. most of the factors that contributed to the original upris
. >> translator: they were local self defense teams. let me make my question more specific. did we participate in training those teams? >> translator: no. we did not. >> at least for today, president obama seemed to get the last word. >> there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international law. i know president putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but i don't think that's fooling anybody. >> there is a lot happening now. the breaking news on efforts to build a so-called off ramp for vladimir putin and new details about putin's conversation with president obama. senior white house correspondent jim akosta joins me now with details about that call. jim, what do you know? >> reporter: first thing to point out before i detail that phone call, we're getting word that the president at a local fund-raiser in the washington, d.c. and told people at the fund-raiser that we may be able to deescalate this crisis in his words. the u.s. may be able to deescalate the crisis in the coming days so interesting to hear the president using
and on their tvs, those are pro russian local forces of self-defense. president obama appearing at a function had this to say regarding putin's claim. >> there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international law. i know president putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but i don't think that's fooling anybody. >> secretary of state john kerry who arrived in kiev also dispute putin's claim when he was asked about it by my colleague, andrea mitchell. >> it's clear that russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further. russia has talked about russian-speaking minority citizens under siege. they're not. >> kerry talked about a meeting with the new government and protest leaders including former pro boxer klitchko. the package includes a $1 billion in loan guarantees. still, the question is how to interpret putin's remarks today. not only did he deny russian troops had invaded crimea, he said that should russia wish to do so, they have every legal right since they would be doing it at the request of t
of other dramatic cuts in the defense budget over the first five years of his administration. and i'm talking now exit wars in iraq and afghanistan. cuts to the base levels of the budget. i think it's consistent with his ideology. i think is he very deliberately trying to down size our military capabilities to make the united states, in his view, less provocative in the world. >> all right. he made a statement, the president did, that you cited in one of the interviews you did with fox news, that having this close colossus army invites terrorism, invites people to attack it on its face, that's true. if you send a big army in to a place like iraq or into a place like afghanistan then all the bad guys in the region come in to try to attack the army. all right? so i didn't think it was a diminishment of power statement. it seemed to me to ablow jis particular call statement. let's do it another way or am i wrong? >> well, i think it's wrong, historically. he said this in the state of the union message just last month that got very little attention that long term deployments may ultimat
as a murder/suicide situation. so there may be charges. an insanity defense is something the defendant may consider if in fact, she's charged with a crime. but they rarely work and are usually unsuccessful at trial. >> but, ken, do you not agree they have to investigate her medical and mental health history here? maybe that's why the sister called. maybe there is a history here which is why she got to her breaking point and had a psychotic episode. >> i'm going to have to step in. i love justice files because we all get into this and riled up, but i'm going to have to leave it there. thank you both for your time tonight. >> thank you. >>> still ahead, jon stewart calls out the right wingers for their strange obsession with food stamps and seafood. you'll want to see this. >>> also, today's shameful vote against the man that president obama wants to lead the charge on civil rights. what was this vote really all about? that's next. ok, here's the way the system works. let's say you pay your guy around 2 percent to manage your money. that's not much, you think except it's 2 percent every year
are? >> reporter: well, i think i talked to a former defense minister and others today and people would find it laughable if it weren't so deadly serious that russian forces have not already intervened in crimea. obviously there is huge concern about russian forces extending into eastern ukraine, which we have not seen, thankfully. but there's nobody here that you talk to in kiev who believes that the forces were seeing on the ground in crimea, as our own people have been reporting and others have been reporting, are not russian forces. the idea that there are self-defense militias simply -- it defies credibility. >> and you know, the other part of the news conference, anderson, president putin described the overall situation in ukraine as an unconstitutional coo. do ukrainians that you've been talking to see this escalating in the next few days? >> reporter: you know, there's certainly a lot of concern about that and i think they are watching it very, very closely. i think it's certainly the fact that vladimir putin has not sent forces into eastern ukraine they would see as a pos
the crisis. defense secretary hagel takes heat up on capitol hill but says the u.s. is suspending military exercises with russia and will step up training with poland's military. we have full coverage beginning with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto here tw latest. jim? >> i think you could say today we saul the full yin and yang of the u.s. policy response to the crisis in crimea. on the other side, secretary of defense chuck hagel demonstrating the u.s. commitment to its nato allies with the deployment of some aircraft and the cancellation-of nato contacts with russia. on the diplomatic side, we saw the opening of a diplomatic path to solving the crisis, the so-called off ramp u.s. officials have mentioned before, still undefined, kerry said, but a start. >> reporter: u.s. and russian diplomats face to face for the first time since the start of the crisis in crimea. secretary of state john kerry said they are now negotiating a diplomatic path to ending it. >> we are committed to working with russia. together with our friends and allies in an effort to provide a way fo
patrolling cry meia, those were not russian forces at all. he insisted they were, quote, local defense forces and call the people's uprising against ukrainian president viktor yanukovych an unconstitutional coup and said they were sitting in a laboratory and running experiments on rats and described anti-government protests, the ones that killed scores of people two week ago an orgy of radicals. putin was nervous, angry, cornered and paranoid, written in the new republic. here was an authoritarian dancing uncomfortably in his new dictator shoes. in the last few years it's something like conventional knowledge in moscow journalistic circles that put. was no longer getting new good information, surrounded by yes men who created a parallel informational universe. indeed, living in a parallel universe seem to be one of the only explanations for putin's perilously irrational behavior. joining me, mark halperin, and from washington, the new york times' white house correspondent and former moscow bureau chief, peter baker. peter, what thoughts are running through putin's head and why he's -- i mean
around putin's russia. poland and the czech republic, we abandoned our missile defense agreements with them to protect europe from a rogue missile attack coming out of the mid east. russia backed obama down. if i were president obama, i would reengage poland and the czech republic regarding missile defense. i would admit georgia to nato. would have a larger nato presence in the balkans. i would fly the nato flag as strong as i could around putin. >> he is rubbing his face. president roosevelt once said don't mention the word rope in a family where there has ban hanging. here is a thought there. the weekly standard's bill kristol explained that humiliation was the way to go when it comes to the russian leader. let's listen to bill. >> we are too quick to say, to proclaim our own helplessness. and i'm not as fatalistic as jeffrey. if america got its back up and got serious, i think the europeans would follow. i don't expect them to lead in this respect. we could make life pretty miserable for putin in a lot of ways. >> but there has to be a way to find a face-saving solution or some
defense official is discussing ukraine with nato members in brusse brussels, as well. so, kristen, what's emerging, it seems in this -- from the swirl of diplomacy is a couple of end games. the russian plan and the western plan, if you will. washington and berlin pushing hard now for something that would include international observers to replace the russian or pro-russian forces in crimea, direct talks between russia and kiev, and new elections in may. now, reduction erussians want t return of viktor yanukovych to head a national unity government and new elections in december, so there's a gulf between the two sides, but at least the two sides are talking again. kristen if, that doesn't work, don't expect to see russian forces pulling back from crimea anytime soon. back to you. >> all right. jim maceda, thank you for that reporting from moscow. we appreciate it. >>> joining me now, california republican ed royce, chairman of the house foreign affairs committee, holding a hearing on ukraine tomorrow. thank you so much for joining me this morning, congressman. appreciate it. >> thank you
, big cuts for a leaner military. so right now defense secretary chuck hagel is testifying before the senate armed services committee, defending cuts to the army and the marines. hagel also told lawmakers, martin dempsey spoke with his russian counterpart today. he urged russia to show continued restraint in the days ahead to show a diplomatic solution. >>> secretary jack lew answers questions on the president's 2015 spending plan. >>> same-sex marriage supporters are riding a wave of momentum. according to a new "washington post"/abc news poll, 50% believe the constitution's guarantee of equal protection gives gays the right to marry. this coincides with attorney general saying gay couples can apply for marriage licenses, even though same-sex marriage doesn't become legal in that state until june. in kentucky, democrats split on the issue. steven bashir said he is hiring outside attorneys to defend the state's same-sex marriage ban. >>> coming up, president obama calling on governors to call for backup when it comes to raising the minimum wage. we'll be talking to connecticut's g
in our criminal justice system, you have to have an advocacy on both sides. criminal defense attorneys don't support crime, but they represent the interest of their client. when you're suing someone because you feel like you've been harmed by them, you know, you're not supporting -- when someone is defending them, you're not supporting the harm. you're supporting the adversarial process. if the state attorney general doesn't stand up for the citizens of their state on a particular law, who else will have standing to go into the court system and represent the interests of the state? usually nobody. >> i want to speak to the fact that eric holder is the one delivering this message. where is president obama on this? we all know president obama over the years has quote/unquote evolved on the gay marriage issue. why are we hearing this from eric holder? >> well, you know, he said that he and the president had spoken about this at great lengths and the decision not to defend doma several years ago was one he did not take lightly. that's when he conveyed to the ags. by the way, i appreciated
sevastpol. russia's defense ministry claim% the movement is purely coinciden coincidence. thobama admistration responding with what could be an ominous threat, secretary of state john kerry warned russia any military in ukraine would be a quote, grave mistake. >> russia needs to be very careful in the judgments that it makes going forward here. we are not looking for confrontation. but we are making it clear that every country should respect the territorial integri here. the sovereignty of ukraine. russia said that it would do that and wethink it's important that russia keeps its word. >> kerry's counterpart in russia fired right back. he warned the west against forcing any decions upon the interim ukrainian government. >> translator: it's dangerous and counterproductive to force upon ukraine a choice based on the principal you're either with us or against us. raine has to be a part of a global european family in the full meaning of the term. >> the crimea, the scene of fierce clashes today between pro and an-russia protesters. the opposing groups were carrying russian and ukraini
. in the crossfire, howard dean, former presidential candidate, and paul wolfowitz, a former deputy defense secretary. is the obama doctrine working? are some republicans undermining the president abroad? tonight on "crossfire." >>> welcome to "crossfire." we're continuing cnn's breaking news coverage of the crisis in ukraine. i'm s.e. cupp on the right. >> we have a former presidential candidate and former pentagon official. today we saw big hits that the tough diplomacy with russia might work. kerry delivered a billion dollar package to kiev. behind the scenes, the obama administration has put together a crippling set of proposed economic sanctions. while the president is busy doing his job, his republican critics keep trying to undermine him. freshman senator and self-appointed foreign policy expert ted cruz writing under the headline language of fools -- have laid mer putin running rampant shows how the obama administration's abdication of global leadership is making the world a more dangerous place. thank you very much for that help in a crisis, ted cruz. ted cruz is taking cheap shots. meanwhil
to a coherent approach, looks at what secretary hagel just announced the new cuts to budget, at defense. and then today we're supposed to believe they will take tough new steps, and imminent more budget dollars, toward this burgeoning problem. if you look at it, you know. politically, if john kerry out polling you with confidence of american people, and you are barack obama, you have to can be worried. lou: and that is a terrific points. doug, ukrainians right now, left we forget they are at center, the epicenter of this crisis. they must be terrifically anxious about there are future, it sthr an is there any clirty foty clarity. >> none, vladimir putin made it clear he is not invading eastern, crane, for now. he made is clear he is not an economy "crime stoppers: cas -- yiemia for now, they say who knows what happens next. they look and hey say, we're going to have try to have presidential elects in may, we'll try to have economic asis sudden stuns from europe and united states put in place quickly. while they are outlines of the all of those processees in place. there no certainty. lo
to bush and obama's secretary of defense bob gates who said this: "it seems to me that trying to speak with one voice, one american voice, has become a quaint thing of the past. i regret that enormously. and so do i. there's nothing more frightening to our enemy than a strong, united voice. it's incumbent upon his political rivals to encourage him privately, not provide political broadsides in public. there's going to be a lot of time to do that during the political campaigns but for now washington leaders should measure their words a bit more carefully because, richard, not on is the whole world watching, vladimir putin is watching. do you agree with secretary gates and myself that you can disagree with the president of the united states, the commander in chief without going out making extreme political broadsides? >> absolutely. what makes it more relevant here, i may be in a minority, but i don't think vladimir putin had in his closet a 16-point plan for ukraine. i think he's improvising and making it up as he's going along, looking for opportunities, playing off what it is we say a
has emboldened vladimir putin at this point. you also mentioned the missile defense shield in poland and the czech republic. i want to remind everybody what president obama said when he was caught on an open mike on this issue early in this presidency. we have the words up on the screen. he said after my election i will have more flexibility. and he said okay i'll take your message back to putin. >> you mentioned the first budget he had 10 years ago, that's when he took down poe portland'. we had a missile intercept base going in there. i talked to poland and said are you sure if we go along with this you won't pull the rug out from under us? and he did that in the first budget. all of our interceptors are on the east coast. now we realize iran will have that capability they are predicting by 2015 and a delivery system. so it's a level of danger, martha, that we have never been in before and we need to start rebuilding. it has got to be a wakeup call to the american people that we can't come up with the resources in places where we should. martha: last night bill o'reilly talked abou
an occupation when these are self-defense forces? these are not russian." that really dampened hopes of any meaningful progress. at least they've talked, and at least it has gone on longer than we thought. the other big news, of course, is the e.u. weighing in with a big financial package, offering $15 billion worth of aid. that comes after yesterday's announcement of a billion dollars of -- of loan guarantees from the u.s. the priority, aside from calming down the security situation in crimea, is, of course, to try and stabilize the ukrainian economy which is in a terrible way with the russians turning the screws still more. the finance ministry here have been frank. they say we've got no money left. the coffers are empty, it's been stolen. also in the east, we've seen more violence, clashes between pro-russian protesters and supporters of the ukrainian government. we've had the -- the government offices there occupied first by the pro-russians, pushed out, and then the pro-ukrainians. and now again today, the pro-russians taking control of that building and putting their flag up. so a pre
call that defense?! come on! [ female announcer ] watch live tv anywhere. the x1 entertainment operating system, only from xfinity. suppressing politicalws opposition, minorities and journalists. and before begin a look at my jail colleagues, you had one more comment on this report? one particular area is the longest recipient of u.s. aid israel is treated with kid gloves when it comes to the israeli occupation. how dominant the power of the military occupation is. the over recipient of major aid in the area is egypt, and right now, al jazeera journalists are being held by the interim government there. what are these arrests and the determination do go ahead tell you about the state of play for press freedom in egypt. >> this is a vermont case, because we have known -- they have had them for a number of years. but this is the first case we have seen where they detained four journalists. and it's a very serious case, and it really signals that the commitment by press freedom is nil, there's no commitment right now. and unformingly much of that has been erased. >> own societies w
served for 33 years in the military, i'm confident we can make the defense budget more efficient while at the same time enhancing programs that grow our economy and protect our children and seniors. we should start by reducing waste in contracting and procurement. today we spend millions to have contract security, guards check i.d. at our bases rather than service members, but no one is any safer. i take responsibility to fix this. it is a privilege to be chosen to serve on the agriculture committee. i am the only member of montana's delegation to sit on the agriculture committee. this committee is so important to montana where our number-one industry is agriculture. from livestock disaster assistance to crop insurance, common sense forest reforms, i look forward to making sure the farm bill works and works efficiently from montana's farmerrers and ranchers. i also look forward to serving on the commerce committee where i will focus on transportation, energy, rural telecommunications and tourism. tourism is montana's second largest sector. it not only contributes to our state's economy
. the latest ultimatum coming to according to ukraine's defense ministry from russia's black sea fleet, saying if ukrainian bases don't evacuate by 5:00 p.m. local time, they will storm them, russian troops will storm them. given that most people acree at this point, russia has complete operational control over crimea, it is not clear what this latest escalation will accomplish. but it is also not clear from what we've been seeing what the endgame here is for russia. it is bizarre that it is almost old news that russian troops fanned out across crimea and surrounding ukrainian military bases. we're hearing disturbingly about other bases in eastern ukraine where russian flags are hosted in eastern ukraine. pro-russians took over a floor of a main administrative building. >> those who are in crimea and if they present any legal and i would raise it again, any legal power in crimea, they try to squeeze ukrainian efforts, come to seize ukrainian property, tried to disarm the ukrainian army. >> reporter: there has been tough talk from western leaders like brit intaken's foreign -- britain's foreign
